How does getting a mortgage work with a roommate?Hi all,I am just barely sticking my toe into the idea of real estate and I have a lot of questions. One that keeps coming up, though, is how to figure out how much house I can afford. I am intent on having a roommate for the foreseeable future, so I would need at least a 2br house. Currently my roommate and I split the rent unevenly, but we pay 1450/month for the house we rent. What is the process for getting a loan in my name but with the guarantee of having a roommate? Thanks!December 13 2011 - Hyde Park00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
